5 Of Melbourne’s Best Laneways

Get to know the nooks and crannies of the world’s most livable city.

Centre Place is smaller, more run-down and grungy, yet that’s exactly what we like. It’s not as popular as Degraves, but it may have a little more personality about it. With tons of cheap eats here, you’ll be in budget food heaven. If Degraves looks like Paris then Centre Place looks more like Rome, except with soups, sandwiches, and wraps will be on the menus.

With all these options that just smash you in the face, we think it’s best you make your own decision on food; there are too many to name! Saying that, if you want to get away from it all, there’s a ‘secret bar’ called Hell’s Kitchen on Centre Place. It’s a floor above, so finding the stairs to the bar might be tricky, but worth the mini-adventure.
